CROATIA

Couples Trip

September 11-16, 2023

THE PEARL OF THE ADRIATIC SEA

The southern city of Dubrovnik in Croatia is the most visited city in the country, and with good reason. As one of the last remaining walled towns in the world, a walk through town is a walk through time and along with the views and weather, Dubrovnik is truly an amazing travel destination.A city of red-tiled rooftops, pine- and cypress-shaded hills, and sparkling turquoise waters, the Old Town of Dubrovnik stuns with both its architecture and scenery. Its surrounding stone walls, built between the 11th and 13th centuries to protect the city from war and epidemics, stretch for a full 1.3 miles, comprising an immense system of forts, bastions, and walkways that offer breathtaking views.

Overlooking the intoxicatingly blue Adriatic and the UNESCO-protected Old City of Dubrovnik, the Excelsior’s situ is unbeatable. For the full sensory experience, take a stroll along the stone jetty, where blooming jacaranda trees lend an almost honeyed haze to the air and the sound of the waves fills your ears, before making your way through the winding streets to the ancient city’s heroic gates.
